OT: Shirt Ranking

Submitted by CRex on December 22nd, 2010 at 7:31 PM
So two purposes here. The first is I'm 99% sure this was handmade by the relative who gave it to me since the shirt lacks any kind of (R) or (tm). If anyone has seen this for sale though please let me know so I don't embarrass myself when I write the thank you. Secondly, hate it or love it? I'm kind of torn. Anyone else get handmade Michigan gear as a gift?

How is it off topic? :-)

<br>Maybe I just have too many loud Michigan shirts, but I like it. I'm still trying to figure out how it was made. It's like an iron-on/quilted combo. Kinda reminds me of an old school 70's kid's shirt. I'd wear it. But I'm of questionable taste. I can certainly think of worse things to have on my chest.

It looked like she had the pattern printed out onto fabric and then quilted it on.  She's a hardcore quilter so it doesn't surprise me.  

I kind of wish it was louder.  I'm a go big or go home kind of guy for offensive shirts.  I have this amazing Hawaiian style Michigan shirt.  I have to watch it like a mother hen watches her chicks so my fiancee doesn't arrange an "accident" for it.

SO much, can she add another patch each year? A few years and you'll be a Go Blue NASCAR driver.

<br>And hide the shirt. I still love my loud coaches polo that practically Hawaiian (I'm not sure if it was what the staff wore in '97 or what year...it was circa around then sometime).

It's the sort of shirt I'd enjoy like I might enjoy a tolerable Justin Bieber song (though I'm not sure one of those exists...): I might enjoy it in the privacy of my own home, but it's not something I'd proudly enjoy in public.

This is coming from a guy who wears an old army helmet to Michigan games, though, so you can take this with the entire salt mine under the city of Detroit.

claim a part of the shirt got stained by food knocked over by dog. cut out portion of the shirt surrounding patch. frame it. hang it. it's worthy of that and shows a profound enjoyment without having to wear it.
